Iron Maiden guitarist Adrian Smith was recently interviewed by British metal magazine Metal Hammer about a variety of topics. When asked about the new Iron Maiden album, he said: "Yeah, we were talking about it briefly the other day and I’ve been thinking about it every day since because there are so many ways we can go with it. It’d be nice if we had the songs now and we could come off tour and go straight into the studio match-fit, as it were. Usually we have a long time off, and the way we play in the studio is as live, so it’s always a bit tense at first because we haven’t played for six months. I’d ideally like to go in [soon]. Again, it’s a day-to-day thing, you go in, take it as you find it, try and do the best job you can."

i may be one of the rare ones that don't give a sh*t about maiden anymore... i listening to all the discogaphy, and never enjoyed anything past Powerslave... iunno, they just don't have the same magic as they used to have back in their earlier days

Now listening to: Dead Skin Mask - Slayer
